Eolus and PNE start co-developing offshore wind in Latvia
JOINT PRESS RELEASE EOLUS / PNE
Hässleholm / Cuxhaven 2023-01-19
Eolus and PNE have created a joint venture for developing the Kurzéme offshore wind project in Latvia. The wind farm will have approximately 1,000 MW installed capacity with planned commercial operation start before 2030.
The project area is located in the Baltic Sea outside the west coast of Latvia and the wind farm will have potential to generate 4,5 TWh renewable electricity per year. Eolus has conducted initial studies and developed the project since 2020 and is now adding resources and competence to the project through the cooperation with the German wind developer PNE. As of 18 January, PNE has acquired 50 percent of the shares in the project company SIA Kurzéme Offshore, which is now owned 50/50 by Eolus and PNE.
“We have been active in the Baltics for more than ten years and have a solid project portfolio. We see great potential in the Baltic countries, where we are now scaling up our business. PNE is an experienced and competent offshore wind developer, and we look forward to cooperating with them in the Kurzeme project. Together with Eolus’ strong development skills we have great pre-requisites to make this a successful project”, says Per Witalisson, CEO of Eolus.
“We are keen to bring in our long-term offshore wind experience and know-how to this partnership. Jointly with Eolus as reliable partner, we expect to develop the project successfully. The acquisition of the 50 percent stake in SIA Kurzéme Offshore is a further step in our strategic development in becoming a Clean Energy Solutions Provider. This expands our "pipeline" of offshore wind projects to the Baltics. We see further attractive prospects for our activities in this area and look forward to working with our new partner" explained Markus Lesser, Chairman of the Board of Management of PNE AG.
Application for the project has been submitted and surveys for the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) will be conducted once research license is obtained. The area is subject to an upcoming tender process.

Interim report 2022/23 - 15% revenue growth and DKK 145 million operating profit (+25%) for the first half following a challenging second quarter8.2.2023 18:57:07 CET | Press release
ANNOUNCEMENT NO. 234 9 February 2023 Interim report for the first half of 2022/23 15% revenue growth and DKK 145 million operating profit (+25%) for the first half following a challenging second quarter Steen Søndergaard, CEO: “Following a very satisfactory 2021/22 with historically high revenue and operating profit growth rates, revenue for the first half of 2022/23 unfortunately disappointed, despite 15% growth. Second quarter sales of instruments, particularly in the North American market, were challenged by a generally more subdued investment sentiment in our primary business segment, cell-based therapy. Our order intake was mainly impacted by weakened demand from capital-sensitive development companies. On the other hand, we saw continued satisfactory growth in sales of consumables and services. Despite the unfavourable market conditions, our earnings continued to grow. While our market is currently affected by the prevailing macroeconomic environment, we have a strong underlying

(+25%) Steen Søndergaard, CEO: ”Efter et særdeles tilfredsstillende 2021/22 med historisk høje vækstrater i både omsætning og driftsresultat har omsætningen i første halvår 2022/23 trods en vækst på 15% desværre ikke levet op til vores forventninger. Særligt salget af instrumenter på det nordamerikanske marked hari andet kvartalværet udfordret som følge af et generelt mere afdæmpet investeringsklima inden for vores vigtigste forretningsområde, cellebaseret terapi. Det er især faldende efterspørgsel fra kapitalfølsomme udviklingsvirksomheder, der har haft en negativ effekt på vores ordretilgang. Derimod har vi set en fortsat tilfredsstillende vækst i salget af forbrugsvarer og serviceydelser. På trods af de ugunstige markedsforhold har vi opnået en fortsat positiv udvikling i indtjeningen.
